It's reminded me my youth. When I was a student this method had been using very often to success start up engine while summer heat. But we had been throwing water from a bucket to IGV with using a mug :)

Here in Brazil it's a rather rare view. Even in very hot days, that are pretty common specially in the north. We never do this kind of thing...I reckon it might help.
